You make it happen. That’s why there are no participants or volunteers at LimmudFest: instead, everyone is a volunticipant

You Are Cordially Uninvited: The Case for Elimination of Bar/Bat Mitzvah Ceremonies

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

At first consideration, it seems nearly impossible and unimaginable to consider eliminating the Bar/Bat Mitzvah ceremony as a significant milestone event in the Jewish lifecycle. However, with some exploration of the history of the ceremony, an examination of the current crisis in post-B’nei Mitzvah drop-out, and consideration of how Jewish education could be drastically better without it, you too will understand why eliminating this ritual as we know it might be good for the Jewish people.
